For seeing what would happen differently.
Also, Doug wouldn't have forgotten to check the batteries.

You know, I'm going through my first playthrough and I felt really guilty over how easily I gave up on Doug. I know overall he gave great potential contributions to the group, but I was really stumbling around trying to get out of the store to the inn, because I was with him before I got the axe; I just wanted to get away from him and that situation.

When I was with Carley, I felt like she was really dependable, even if she was just another gun.

Hell, I came into this wanting to be Larry's friend, but then I realized, he left me for dead after basically trying to kill me. I know he's trying to protect his daughter and then BAM, it hit me!

We forget that Lee Everett is the character, even if it's the player behind him.

Should we act according to how we'd want it to be, how we'd take charge, or accept that Lee needs to keep a lid on things?

Questions. Questions.

I am pretty sure that this was the first of those binary decisions in the game, so I had no idea how they worked. I just saw Carley being grabbed by the foot and asumed she might free herself (as other character constantly do in later parts of the game).

Because at the most simple level the game offers two choices with there being variation which occurs due to those choices. So why would you want to limit yourself and not see everything the game has to offer?

I noticed that he was good with electronics / tech stuff and thought that could be useful.

Agreed. I though he would be useful, too, but for some reason a lot of people tend to save Carley instead. I think I saved him the 1st time, and then on my second playthrough, feeling guilty about letting my 1st Carley die, I saved her. I think I played it enough times to try out most of the scenarios where I got to chose who lived, except 1 particular loser I let die every single time. That's one thing I really love about the game vs the show is that if Idon't like someone, I may get an opportunity to let them get eaten alive, or kill them outright, instead of waiting to see what the show's writers will do.

I chose Doug because I figured Carly was the romance-bait character and I wasn't really interested in playing to the devs expectations.

Doug proved to be more useful in Episode 2 anyway and I really connected with the guy, so it worked out well.

I chose Doug because the lady knows your secret, but he also seemed like the better person overall.

I saved Doug because I thought Carley could shoot the zombies on her own:Carley:

This was a while back, but I'll support mine. In real life, and if I had to make REAL decision, I would choose Doug. If he haden't gotten shot by Lily, he could've helped reintroduce the lost art of techonolgy at settlements such as Wellington or something.
